Oriental Rugs captured in Mosaic Art

I am most happy and privileged to have recently acquired a new rug to add to our collection. This piece was handmade not in wool, silk or cotton but in glass! The illustrious mosaic artist Suzanne Spahi is the creator. Suzanne recently moved to Italy from Canada for work, love and study. She taught the art of mosaic creation in her Montreal studio and has traveled the world to view and learn from the great mosaic artists through the ages. Her love of the patterns and iconography found in tribal Oriental rug designs captured her imagination and she has a series of Oriental rug mosaics that are intricate and beautiful. These sparkling rugs have been around the world on exhibition. I am so glad that one has found its way to us!
